Our verdict in the New Issue Analysis section was, “Near debt free status, healthy margins, high entry barriers (as typical additive approval time ranges between 3-5 years) are key positives for the company, catering to the growing consumption related industries. Since issue pricing is more-or-less in line with listed peers, one can expect moderate listing gains. If one has a longer view, the stock looks very promising. Hence, advised to add this stock to one’s portfolio, to witness some ‘fine’ gains over the medium-to-long term.”
